Question on CISSP
Posted on 2006-11-18
I am seeking information.
I have been in networking and involved in network security for 20 years, but I've never taken a security certification exam, with the exception of the SANS GSEC earlier this year. I have found that experience has always carried more weight than the cert. However, there is a job coming up that requires a CISSP and a CISA. If I want to apply I need at least one of the certs. I have the TESTOUT CBT CD's for the CISSP and I was wondering for those who have dedicated themselves to studying and successfully passing the CISSP exam how long did it take?
I could attend a boot camp, for the CISSP, in the very near future and knock this out very quickly.
I would really like to know, for those who have passed the CISSP, how long did it take? I realize the exam covers a pretty broad area. The same information for the CISA would also be helpful.
